Despite tremendous growth, the industry still dominated by traditional speculation and great misunderstanding.

We, at HFB, have developed our standpoints as a result of extensive studies combined with a real hands-on investment experience and trading. Often, our contrarian views differ drastically with the commonly accepted concepts. Read More...
